Advanced Level at Rato Bangala School (NP 704),
Cambridge International Examination Centre


Since its establishment in 1992, Rato Bangala has provided student-centered education to students between the ages of six to eighteen. The school offers a rigorous curriculum with up-to-date teaching methods, good facilities and trained teachers.

After students take the SEE examination in grade X, they begin the two-year Advanced (A) Level course conducted by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Students interested in joining this programme apply immediately after the SEE examinations.

Rato Bangala School is a registered Cambridge International Examination Centre. Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) offers international courses, examinations and qualifications to students all over the world. A Level, as its name indicates, is an advanced international degree designed for academically inclined students; its courses prepare them for higher education anywhere in the world.

Why CIE A-Level

  • Flexibility: The structure of the A Level course allows students considerable flexibility in designing a stimulating programme of study. Students have the option of choosing either A (Advanced) Level or AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Level courses in order to fulfill the Level requirements. Students choose the length and depth of study which match their interests.
  • Rigour: Demanding courses stretch able students, who can also take a heavy course load for an additional challenge.
  • International standards: The programme sets a standard for education around the world.
  • Recognition: An A Level degree is recognized by countries across the globe as meeting their requirements for entry into higher education.

The A-Level programme lasts two years. Classes for A-Level students begin in June.

Eligibility for the A-Level 
Students who have taken the SEE/GCSE or equivalent at the time of admission can apply. The main requirement is academic ability to fulfill the rigours of this challenging programme. Each year Rato Bangala uses a comprehensive evaluation system to select a highly motivated group of students to join the programme.
